Germany and Poland know each other well from qualifying, where Poland beat their neighbours for the first time, and no quarter will be offered in their UEFA EURO 2016 Group C rematch.

Previous meetings
• Germany’s record in 20 games against Poland is W13 D6 L1 (W5 D2 L1 in competitive encounters.

• Poland finally ended their 18-match winless run against Germany when they defeated the world champions 2-0 in Warsaw during the UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying campaign, Arkadiusz Milik and Sebastian Mila getting the goals. The return in Frankfurt ended 3-1 to Joachim Löw’s side, who went on to top the group.

• Two Lukas Podolski goals earned Germany a 2-0 victory against the country of his birth at UEFA EURO 2008. Two years earlier, Oliver Neuville’s last-minute winner knocked Poland out of the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

• The teams also met at the first World Cup staged on German soil, in 1974. The hosts triumphed 1-0 thanks to a late strike by Gerd Müller.

EURO 92: Germany’s semi-final thriller

EURO facts – Germany
• Germany are competing in their 12th successive EURO since missing out on the final tournament as West Germany, their first attempt, in 1968.

• EURO winners in 1972, 1980 and 1996 – and three-time beaten finalists – Germany have failed to make it through the group stage on three occasions, in 1984, 2000 and 2004.

• Germany’s only previous game in Saint-Denis was a 2-0 friendly loss to France on 13 November 2015 – a match overshadowed by the terror attacks in Paris that day.

EURO facts – Poland
• Poland are appearing at their third successive EURO final tournament, but have yet to make it through the group stage. They failed to win a game in their first two finals campaigns: W0 D3 L3.

• Poland’s greatest success on the international stage to date is winning bronze medals at the 1974 and 1982 World Cup finals.

• Poland’s Robert Lewandowski was the top scorer in qualifying with 13 goals, matching a competition record set by Northern Ireland’s David Healy in UEFA EURO 2008 qualifying.
